Milan Lucic has served his two game suspension and will be back in the Flames lineup tonight as they take on the New Jersey Devils. Lucic was suspended after sucker punching Kole Sherwood of the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night. The Flames went 1-1 in his absence, and are fresh off a 4-3 overtime win over the Arizona Coyotes. Lucic, who is no stranger to disciplinary action from the league, will look to keep his emotions in check as he searches for his first goal. He has struggled early with his offensive game, having only 3 assists in 16 games, and is a minus 3. His counterpart that he was traded for, James Neal, has been the complete opposite and is one of the reasons why Edmonton is leading the Pacific division.
Will having Lucic back in the lineup benefit or hurt the Flames? Let us know in the comments below!
